But calling him a "brilliant" defender?
Brooks Robinson was a brilliant defender.
I'd call Jay slightly above average as a CF.
You're right about his arm but he made some amazing defensive plays last year. He didn't make an error last season (take that for what you will). You're probably right in saying that I go overboard a bit with calling him brilliant on defense. He's really good though.
